Viking Clothing, Viking Tunics and Viking Shoes
As can be expected from their traditionally northern location, Viking clothing tended towards warmth as opposed to opulence. But still, that does not mean that all Viking clothing was without decoration. Dark Knight Armoury banishes that myth by offering up a selection of great Viking apparel that is as historical as it is appealing, making us an easy choice to visit to make when it comes to building your own Viking styled ensemble. Traditionally Viking apparel tended towards wool as a material, as it was a warm material to use. Our own Viking tunics, trousers, skirts, and dresses tend towards wool as well - either that, or heavy cotton and other materials that lend a thick, realistic look and feel towards the garment. Many are also subtly accented, featuring trim along the edges that feature knotwork or other such patterning, or touches of fur that lend it a unique sort of appeal that looks like it belongs in the cold reaches of the north. Among Viking men, a traditional look consisted of a long tunic, trousers, and a belt about the waist. Among Viking women, a comfortable dress or a bodice and skirt were worn instead, although nothing stopped a Viking woman from wearing trousers as well, if the need was there. Dark Knight Armoury carries all that you need to build plenty of looks for men and women Vikings both, and we offer clothing with just the right touches of adornment so that you can look like an honored warrior or shield-maiden when you do.
